The city government and the Fil-Am Business Chamber of the Philippines, Inc. (FBCP) are planning the conduct of a trade mission in Baguio tentatively scheduled from March 11 to 17, 2024.
During an initial meeting at the City Mayor’s Office with representatives from concerned government offices and agencies, FBCP Chair Jonathan Nollora said the planned activity will be in the form of an exposition aimed at showcasing Baguio City’s products and services for the United States market.
He said Baguio, with its rich cultural heritage, thriving economy, and strategic location, would be the ideal host for the week-long event.
The FBCP is also interested in collaborating with the city government to hold a medical mission during the activity.
Nollora expressed confidence that the trade mission will further enhance the economic ties between the Philippines and the United States while showcasing Baguio City as a premier destination for business, tourism, and retirement.
The meeting was presided over by Leandro Tabilog, executive officer III of the City Mayor’s Office and joined by representatives from the Departments of Tourism and Trade and Industry regional offices, City Tourism Office, Baguio City Police Office, and City Information Office.
Another meeting has been scheduled next week to finalize the date, venue, and other matters regarding the trade mission and will include representatives from the private sector. – Gaby B. Keith
